Ceschi Shares “Beginning Of A New Era,” Announces Album

Prolific might just be the word that comes to mind when mentioning Ceschi Ramos, that emcee/musician who is consistent with releasing material without fanfare. The Codefendants, that band he plays in with Sam King (Get Dead) and Fat Mike (NOFX), released its debut full-length earlier this year and today sees the release of his Factor Chandelier-produced single “Beginning Of A New Era.” The track is off the newly announced full-length release Bring Us The Head Of Francisco False [Part 1] (Fake Four Inc.), set to drop April 4, 2024. Ever present is Factor’s signature expansive sound with Ceschi’s quick-tongued lyricism.

About the new album, Ceschi offers:

Bring Us The Head Of Francisco False is the final album of Ceschi Ramos’ solo discography which started in 2004 with the album Fake Flowers – a lo-fi bedroom hip-hop unraveling of childhood trauma. This finale is an exercise in confronting overwhelming grief by closing doors in order to open new ones. It is a two-headed, oftentimes emotionally contradictory, record inspired by rebirth after death, the beauty of endings & the multiple meanings of the term “revolution”. It is as tender as it is rage driven & as naively hopeful as it is disenchanted. It is a goodbye to shady drug games & even shadier music games while serving as a thank you to the countless lost along those paths.

Throughout this 70-minute exorcism there are odes to musicians, thinkers & friends who helped form Ceschi’s artistic identity. There are sentences from shredded-up love notes and suicide notes all piled up amongst each other, rolled into balls, and thrown at unsuspecting listeners. All of those half-thought scribbles written by someone who never expected to make it to 40 but decided to stick around and sift his way through the cultural recycling bin that is modernity.

This is freedom from previously built expectations.

This is appreciation for all of the obstacles & experiences of the past while marking an official start to a new life, new family, new priorities.

It’s closure.
A eulogy can really be the most important type of love letter.
